Rumor has it that Alanis did this cover of the Black-Eyed Peas original as an April fools joke - but it has yet to be confirmed it was a deliberate April Fools thing..

But she does link to the video on her main site (http://alanis.com/myhumps.html) so I think even if it wasn't a 4/1 deal, it was meant to be a satire/parody of how stupid the songs lyrics really are..

When viewing her version, it is a pretty supid song (lyrically).. especially considering the original version won a Grammy..

Hey DamnYank... consider yourself warned.. I figured you're old enough that you might forget you watched it the first time...

Are you serious? That song (the original one) is up there among some of the worst songs I've ever had the misfortune of listening to. And it won a Grammy? :eek:

No no no, I think it must have won a 'granny', perhaps as the booby prize in some sort of amateur karaoke night.

I don't know what's going on with that video! Perhaps she took too many jagged little pills.

Wow,

At least when you can't understand the words its not THAT bad,
this version is idiotic :p.
Don't like the other version either though.

It has been fixed for years. I don't think I've ever watched that award show. Liked the vid tho. Thanks Petros !

If only some real deserving and true musicians could win some awards. Would love to see Tool win, that would make my day. But bands like that don't fit in with that crowd... ya know, they have talent. :smoker:

I found this funny as crap... and I can see where it would have been a spoof...

No one should take things too seriously...
